The passenger beside her was actually watching The Notebook while McAdams sat beside him and every time the actress would get up, the guy would be like “Get out of the way”.

“I saw The Notebook on the plane and I try to drink a lot of water when I’m flying and so I had to get up to go to the bathroom and the guy beside me he was like… it was lovely, he was so enthralled but every time I got up he was just staring at the screen and I was this close [pulling two hands close] to him. Walking past him and he’s you know like ‘Get out of the way'”.

“He was like ‘Get out of the way I’m trying to watch Rachel McAdams’. That’s such a weird thing”.
